    I do like eye contact.  :)My story is about my eyelid.  I think, I had an infection for about a few days.  Today it got better.  This morning, I put lots of warm water on my eyelid and it worked.  It isn't as red as it used to be, less painful and swollen.  I checked it out...

    I love when girls look into my eyes

    and smile at me... I get butterflies so easily from that. It's amazing. Whenever a girl looks into my eyes and smiles at me it makes my day 100x better 😍 the girls that do that, keep doing it.

    and find that hottie with a body who manages to find my eyes on them. I love it when it happens because I just have so much to say.... Without actually saying anything. Eyes now locked... I give her that slight smile and raise an eyebrow. She smiles back and keeps looking. And I...

    Eye Contact Is a Sign of Sincerity

    Revealing and Intriguing

    I am both a bit shy and a bit bold in my eye contact with people. I like to directly connect with the eyes, but I don't like to have a conversation where eye contact is maintained almost constantly. It feels invasive to me to be stared down. I like to look into their eyes, hold...

    It feels good. When you are talking

    and all eyes are on you. It makes you feel that what you are saying is important. I don't think many people will deny that receiving eye contact in conversations is very meaningful. Sometimes receiving eye contact can say more than we can

    People who avoid looking into my eyes have something to hide. I am provoked by here inability to connect like this. It makes me doubt their integrity a little since looking into eyes is a connection of souls.

    So Unusual These Days

    The Most Alluring Trait

    A woman who knows how to use her gaze is a huge turn on to me. In a crowded room, knowing you have caught someone's attention when she gives that first, quick gaze, followed by a longer gaze and a half-smile---totally sexy.

    but it is important. The eyes are the root of the soul they say. Honesty is seen in the eyes.

    Tells You a Lot About a Person

    Eye contact says several things to me - it says that the person I am talking to is open and honest; it says that they are giving me the courtesy of their attention like I would give to them; and the eyes do tell you a lot about a person, I think - how hard their life has been...

    Please Look Into My Eyes!

    I like people looking into my eyes while they speak to me. I think the main advantages of looking into someone's eyes are: 1)To read in the eyes what the mouth isn't saying explicitly - they're the main item of body language. 2)To be trusted as a frank and straight person...

    Strong eye contact. Eye contact

    that when you stare deeply into someone's eyes you know that they are feeling what you feel. That irreplaceable, unmistakeable eye contact that kicks you right in the gut when you're not expecting it and says wake the **** up.

    They say the eyes are the windows to the soul.

    ... There are very few people skilled at lying who can look you squarely in the eyes. Eye contact speaks of at least a little honesty, even if it is with semantics they effectively lie to you, changing the nature of what they tell you in their word choice and expression.
